We attended an interestng and well-produced biography of Ted Harrison, the Yukon's most famous artist. It is a beautiful theatre with warm and friendly staff.

Did not expect to have access to such a wide variety of quality entertainment programs so close to the down town area. Take the time to check the program schedule while you are in town. It is worth it.
